PPC Protect

The only fully automated click fraud solution for Google Ads

About PPC Protect

PPC Protect is a SaaS solution for pay-per-click marketers that automates the real time monitoring of ads to detect and prevent fraudulent clicks. Designed and built around an agency and enterprise-first approach, the product is priced according to protection values from entry-level ad spend of $2,500 per month up to $1m+ per month, with full feature access and premium support. Flexible to monitor just one or multiple domains with administration via a web-based dashboard, PPC Protect includes real time IP address and device blocking, detection via our proprietary self-learning AI algorithm, and protects an unlimited number of clicks.

The platform's Google Ads click monitoring funnel offers unobtrusive, covert performance with no impact on user experience and requires no installation. Copy and paste to setup within a website to initialize full traffic monitoring that leverages the collection of over 100 items of unique visitors data, before cross-referencing PPC Protect's fraudulent device / activity database. Augmented with machine learning & AI, the software's algorithms blacklist beyond the scope of the usual Google Ad 500 IP limit.

Even if and when a fraudulent clicker switches their IP address, ads will be protected accordingly by virtue of device ID tracking.

Key benefits of PPC Protect

  • PPC Protect's automated click fraud protection software helps to protect online marketers running PPC campaigns of any size, providing the protection of 35k+ Google Ads accounts in over 130 countries.
  • Installed on websites by copy and paste, the cloud-hosted SaaS features automatic, real time IP blocking that determines when, where and how a fraudulent click occurs while blocking that IP address from seeing the ads.
  • Full traffic monitoring capabilities go beyond logging clicks of pay-per-click (PPC) adverts, to also analyze website visitors and building a more detailed profile that identifies fraudulent behavior before it happens.
  • The product's monitoring funnel works in parallel to existing Google tracking for a seamless experience, collecting 100 pieces of unique visitor data and analyzing its threat level against known fraudulent devices or activities, before blacklisting the device if necessary and blocking even if the user switches IP address.
  • Web-based account access allows for multiple users and role-based permissions, while PPC Protect's centralized admin dashboard enables multiple domains to be added and managed from one location all for no extra cost.
  • Our proprietary self-learning AI algorithm allows us to detect click fraud with unprecedented accuracy. No more configuring row after row of options - let our system do the work.

    We have significantly more ad spend to attract real customers with now that all our competitors have been blocked.

    Pros

    Stopped click fraud on my Google adwords account almost instantly. I had serious problems with competitors draining my budgets but now that has totally stopped.

    The support team are excellent at answering any queries we have and are very proactive.

    Cons

    The dashboard could do with a few more explanations as it wasn't particularly clear how to use at first. However the team did walk me through it (in person no less!) which was much appreciated.

    A powerful tool that's increased our productivity & functionality at all levels

    Reviewed on 2018/07/03

    Pros

    PPC Protect has been a pleasure to use from the first time we reached out. It's allowed us auto IP blocking, multiple detection rules, & many functionality features. Their low cost & great customer service also really helped.

    Cons

    At first we were concerned with integration of PPC Protect within our company but we soon realized it scales up extremely well. It's also very easy for multiple users simultaneously, which is even better than we anticipated.

    negavite. It has bugs everywhere, it lacks accuracy in the numbers and in the way it works.

    Pros

    Is simple to use and its functionality is promising

    Cons

    The software and service itself is not accurate and it won't deliver quality at all. Their javascript was flagged as malware by Google and it stopped all the campaigns. This is supposed to protect your campaigns, not to insert malware in your websites.

    Response from PPC Protect

    Hello,

    Unfortunately we cannot verify that you are a PPC Protect customer, as you have remained anonymous. Please contact [email protected] to verify you are in fact a customer.

    I can confirm that PPC Protect does not contain any "malware" at all. We can see you have also left reviews on other platforms complaining about PPC Protect being malware, and that it is "full of bugs", which are not true statements.
    As a result, we have reason to believe these reviews may in fact not be genuine, and have been left on behalf of a competing platform.

    Should you wish to discuss any issues we are always reachable at [email protected]

    Superb support with friendly staff

    Pros

    The support and the amount of fraudulent clicks it prevented seemed much higher than that of ClickCease.

    Cons

    The pricing is only slightly higher than the competitors. You get what you pay for.

    Great solution for dealing with click fraud

    Reviewed on 2018/06/22

    Pros

    This is a real lifesaver when it comes to projects in the competitive niche and specifically those with little budgets, when you want every click to count. It's easy to setup and starts working immediately, giving you all the necessary reports.

    Cons

    The number of platforms it works with is limited, I hop it will expand to more places where pay per click ads are available.

    Response from PPC Protect

    Hi Igor,

    Thank you for your review - it's always great to hear from happy customers!

    We are currently looking in to expanding in to more platforms, including Bing Ads and paid social media advertising, we will keep you updated once we have more news on these :).

    Thanks,
